Pelargonium Freeze-Dried Powder

Product Description

The original PelaPower TM extract that Afrigetics has produced since 2010, using an extraction method of sonication and freeze-drying. This unique pelargonium powder has been blended with water and extracted with Hielscher sonication to rupture the cells and release the active ingredients in the plant material. The sonicated herbal emulsion is then immediately freeze-dried to preserve the integrity of all the active ingredients. This herbal powder is therefore theoretically more bio-available than regular dried pelargonium powder.
